Prosecutors seek prison term for ex-Miss Turkey

2017 Itir Esen 18 poses in front of the contest jury for Miss Turkey 2017 in Istanbul

Itir Esen, 18, could spend a year in jail under charges of "publicly denigrating" Turkish society due to a tweet about her period, reported The Times of Israel.

Victor contestants Itir Esen (C), crowned as Miss Turkey World, Asli Sumen (L), crowned as Miss Turkey Universe and Pinar Tartan (R), crowned as Miss Turkey Supranational, are seen at the end of the Miss Turkey 2017 beauty contest at the Grand Pera Emek Stage in Istanbul, Turkey on September 21, 2017.

In the tweet, she compared the blood shed in her menstrual cycle with that of the 249 people who lost their lives during the failed coup and are now celebrated in Turkey as martyrs.

According to the indictment, Esen acknowledged the tweet was written by herself and said she shared it to "commemorate the July 15 coup martyrs for ironic purposes".

Esen's tweet had drawn outrage from the public and prompted the Miss Turkey competition to remove her crown. "I'm marking the day by bleeding as a representation of the martyrs' blood".

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Turkish prosecutors are seeking a maximum one year prison term for a former beauty queen who was stripped of her crown over a social media posting deemed to be "insulting" to the victims of last year's failed coup, state-run Anadolu Agency reported on Thursday.

The Istanbul Anadolu Criminal Court of Peace is expected to either accept or reject the prosecutor's indictment within 15 days.

Prosecutors in 2015 launched an investigation against former Miss Turkey beauty queen Merve Buyuksarac on charges of insulting Erdogan through social media posts.

But her 14-month sentence was suspended on condition that she does not reoffend within the next five years.
